from Virtuous Daughters, August 2003~Volume 3, Number 5
Baking, cooking, recipes, and pretty aprons did not seem to catch my interest much until about six or seven months ago. :) Before, I felt that “making food” was dull and unrewarding. Due to my dear mother’s encouragement and enthusiasm, however, I have started to develop a skill which I am sure will benefit me the rest of my life. Thanks, Mommy! I’d also like to thank my grandmother, who also enjoys cooking, for teaching me how to make homemade pizza, kolaches, and cinnamon rolls. They are so yummy! :) Thanks, Nanny! And special thanks to my friend Melissa, who had the idea of exchanging recipes. I am doing that with a few friends now and it’s been a real motivation. Thanks, Melissa!
Furthermore, I’d like to share with you a few tips I have learned from mishaps and experiences :); I am definitely still learning—I’ve just become a little more courageous at trying new recipes! :)
“Making food” is really an enjoyment, but it’s also a necessity as a young lady. Right now we are just helping our mothers and learning from them, but it won’t be long and we’ll be making all of the meals ourselves. Remember what the Bible says in Proverbs 31:15, She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.” Happy Cooking! :)
